Favorite "C" Things

I have been lassoed into another exercise, this time by Butterfly Gardener. I’ll get even you with you, my dear! I am to list my favorite things that begin with letter “C”. Here’s what you do if you would like to play along: Leave a comment on this post requesting a letter, and I will assign you one. Then, you write about 10 things you love that begin with your assigned letter. Post it on your blog and when people comment on your list, you give them a letter. And the chain continues on.

Here’s my list:

Coffee – I cannot begin my day without the power of this magical elixir. After being raised in a tea drinking house during my youth and not allowed to drink coffee, I rebelled during my college days and went straight for the hard-core caffeine. Ahhhhh!

Chocolate – Regardless of the various clothing sizes during my lifetime, the love affair with chocolate will never end.

Camera – Now that the working-for-a-living grind is behind me, I have been able to spend more time getting acquainted with my trusty Nikon digital camera. Aren't you glad?

Cottage – This is a love and hate relationship lately, LOL. I love this place but we are getting too old to maintain it! Anybody want to come over in a couple of months and help spread a mountain of mulch on the flowerbeds? I’ll serve refreshments!

Color – I can’t resist beautiful fabrics, threads, and beads, so my stash continues to grow. I adore the multitude of colors!

Countryside – I am a country gal. I like to visit the cities, but prefer to live out in the countryside.

Coupons – Clip coupons? You bet your sweet scissors, I do! Why would I want to pay full price for an item when I can get it for less?

Cardinal – I love birds and cardinals are particularly fun to watch at the bird feeders.

Computer – Life was fun before computers, but now it is even BETTER! I am making friends all over the world because of this captivating invention!

Creating – The creating gene is scarce in my family tree, so I have no idea how I caught the creative bug. It seems I have always wanted to be busy with my hands. I am thankful for being a Brownie when I was a wee little girl. That is how I learned to do embroidery. I’ve been puttering around since then creating pretty things and making messes.


  1. I can relate to alot of your C's. I can't live without my coffee, first thing I go for every morning and chocolate is another favorite too. Good C's Donna. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, hey that's another C to love. LOL Have a good one.

  2. Wonderful Cs! I love them all! I can especially relate to coffee, country, camera, and computer.

  3. I love a lot of your C's like coffee, and my camera, and coupons and chocolate, too! OK I'll play. Assign me a letter, too!

  4. Great list! I'm ready for life to settle back down.

  5. I can relate to all of your list except I'm a cola girl instead of coffee! Hope you had a great Christmas!

  6. I see that everyone relates to my list! I agree, Karen M - I'm ready for life to settle back down too! I always look forward to a little rest in Jan. and Feb. before the spring chores begin.

    Jeanette - Glad to see you want to play! I'm going to give you the letter "R"!


Marty, here! Donna loves comments, and I faithfully pass them on to her. Thank you so much for visiting!
